Wes Bentley Talks Sobriety & Being A Dad

Wes Bentley Talks Sobriety & Being A Dad

Wes Bentley poses for a feature in Details‘ latest issue, which names his “The Comeback.”

Here’s what the 33-year-old actor had to share:

On working with Lenny Kravitz in The Hunger Games: “[We] really clicked. We’d talk about acting and music, about his life in the Bahamas, hurricanes. Also how much we love – and really miss – eating burgers. He was getting ready for a tour, so he couldn’t, and I’ve been cutting back ever since I got sober.

On when he decided to get clean after abusing drugs: “When I met my wife. I saw then what I have now. I saw life. We met through a mutual friend, and all of us went to an Iron Maiden concert, which is sooo romantic. Eddie the Head [the band's mascot] just brings people together. It still took me a while to get sober after that, but the switch had happened. We were long-distance for a while, and I’d try to be sober for her, but I ended up withdrawing with her – and I hated that. That’s when I told her everything. She wasn’t mad. She wanted to help.

On his 1-year-old son, Charles: “I feel so aware of everything -for his sake. Babies are all emotions, so I’m aware of reason because I have to protect him from his lack of reason. I’m aware of society, because I’m getting ready to send him off into it. And I’m aware of what I’m eating because I want to influence the way he eats. It’s truly being alive.”
